Tyler Perry’s Mother Passes Away At 64

Published by Clay Cane on Tuesday, December 8, 2009 at 12:00 am.

tylerperryCondolences go out to Tyler Perry, his friends and family. Yesterday Tyler Perry’s mother, Willie Maxine Perry, passed away at the age of 64. According to Tyler Perry’s web site, “My mother is the wisdom of Madea, she was 64. Thank you for all your prayers.”

The female figures in Perry films and plays have always been such a huge force. One can only imagine how Tyler Perry was inspired by the women in his life, especially his mother.  Back in August, Tyler said his mother was ill and asked for prayers.  As of October, Perry planned to not work for the rest of 2009 in order to care for his mother.

Willie Maxine Perry was a pre-school teacher for most of her life and raised Tyler Perry in New Orleans, Louisiana.  It’s widely known that Tyler and his mother suffered abuse at the hands of his father. However, Mr. Perry has been able to reinvent his circumstances, becoming a major force in Hollywood and opening the first African American-owned film studio in Atlanta, Georgia.

Perry had planned to take Madea on the road for a nationwide tour in early 2010.  There is no word if the tour will be postponed.

Our thoughts are with the entire Perry family.

All of the prayer that I could throw your way would not be enough to tell you exactly how I feel. God has been so good to us all and we all have enjoyed the benefit from your mom sharing you with us.

I thank her very much because she was not selfish. For that reason I pray that God send his angels and put his arms around her and send you peace.

My prayers are with you at this trying time.Never give up hope,as that will guide you.I lost my father in 2007 at the age of 68 to a massive heart attack,he was a plumber and a songwriter,his dream was to have one of his songs in a hit movie,he never saw the light. Mr Perry my father is looking down on us all right now with a great big smile upon his face cause even in death miracles do happen . It is ironic that “It took a long time”, the song sung by Labelle in the hit movie Precious was co-written by my father Raymond Bloodworth. Me and my siblings want to thank you, our daddy finally got his wish. God Bless and our prayers are with you.

Tyler, my heart goes out to you and your family members. I’m still praying for you that Our Father will comfort and strength you daily. I know exactly what you’re going through because I lost my Mother in 2001 and my father in 2006.

Continue to be strong and keep your Mother’s memories alive. She’s in a better place and she will always be in your heart. She will forever look down on her precious and famous son.

Tyler, your Mother was very happy about your success and you gave her everything she could have ever desired. Be strong, Tyler!!!
